    How much should it cost for a lab to develop a 4x5 sheet?

    I'm wondering if the one close to me (NYC village) is a bad deal--they charge $4 a sheet.

    What does your local lab charge?

    I paid about the same... until my local lab closed up. I think it was $9 with a contact sheet.

    The place that does my film is less than .40 a sheet (done in my daughter's bathroom!)

    Sorry... I lied. I paid $4.50 each for D&P.

    Pro Photo Supply in Portland charges $2.25 per 4x5 sheet for color, E-6 or C-41. Only $6.50 for 8x10 color! (That's processing only, no contacts or other prints.)

    I'm feeling lucky right about now.

    And I'm feeling grateful that you mentioned this. The lab I used quit processing 4x5.

    Didn't even know that Pro Photo did processing, i have a feeling they let Citizen Photo do the actual work but i could be wrong.

    Jan,

    Pro Photo has a whole separate location for their processing department, down the street and around the corner, so it isn't too far from their regular storefront. I do know that they send their E-6 out, possibly their C-41 as well. I'm not sure. I don't think Citizen is the outfit doing it for them, though. Given the somewhat long turnaround time it might be sent by courier to Seattle? Maybe just somewhere else in town.

    Regardless, the prices are great, if you ask me. If there is an 'outlab' markup it doesn't seem like much of one, and the service is friendly. I have a friend who is cutting his own thin base B&W aerial roll film down to fit his 4x5 holders (film that expired in the 50s). His cuts are irregular and uneven but the lab doesn't balk at his order--they process it just fine under the circumstances.
